I am so very excited to share my newest book with all of you! Upon reflection, I realize this is the book I have been working up to writing since I began teaching herbal medicine in 2008 – an exciting culmination of my culinary, herbal and teaching experiences to date. This 312-page hardcover book is full of over 110 original recipes and gorgeous photographs were taken right here at the Thyme Herbal classroom and gardens in Conway, Massachusetts.

Author and herbalist Brittany Wood Nickerson understands that food is our most powerful medicine. In Recipes from the Herbalist’s Kitchen she reveals how the kitchen can be a place of true awakening for the senses and spirit, as well as deep nourishment for the body. With in-depth profiles of favorite culinary herbs such as dill, sage, basil, and mint, Nickerson offers fascinating insights into the healing properties of each herb and then shares 110 original recipes for scrumptious snacks, entrées, drinks, and desserts that are specially designed to meet the body’s needs for comfort, nourishment, energy, and support through seasonal changes.
What a blessing of a book! Beautiful, informative, inspiring, and full of great recipes, this is so much more than a cookbook; it is a deep encounter with why and how to nourish, heal, and thrive through food and herbs.
